Published June 1, 2013


LibriVox recording of Quintus Oakes: A Detective Story, by Charles Ross Jackson.

There have been a series of assaults at the manor house, one sending the mistress of the house insane with fear, another escalating to murder. There are reports of a tread on the stairs and shady figures disappearing from view. The servants blame the supernatural, but Quintus Oakes gets to the bottom of the mystery. (Summary by Lynne Thompson)

Subject: Enjoyed this mystery novel
The detective Oakes and his assistant encounter murder in a quiet town. Oakes employs some interesting tactics to catch the criminal.

I thought this was a mostly good story, if a bit predictable and far-fetched in spots. Readers were good.

Subject: Kinda different detective story
Thanks to all the various readers for an entertaining read!
Oakes is a little bit of a Sherlock Holmes in his approach.
There is no feminine influence in the story; just grown up boys having adventures ....
